Pros: Light. The hydro brakes are excellent, and I love the fox fork. Smooth as butter shifting. It comes with a great stock set-up, so there's no need to go out and spend more cash on better components.
Cons: The only thing I've had trouble with is the spring in the right pedal shifting around so the clip collapses.
Recommendation: Great bike. All-around good set-up. It will bring you much joy, especially if you have some great XC terrain.
